It is hard to believe that the holiday season is upon us, but Thanksgiving is merely ten days away! While this time of year brings lots of goodies (food, vacation, gifts), it also presents a profusion of added stress (full social calendar, airport security, relatives). Instead of succumbing to this seasonal anxiety by neglecting your personal appearance, we say, take advantage of the extra opportunities to show off your style! In today's story, we detail some fresh tips for you to apply to the outfits you wear to all upcoming parties and family gatherings.

1. Swap out your skinny jeans for slim black trousers.
The widely adored supermodel, Heidi Klum, certainly knows how to travel chicly. We spotted the Project Runway queen earlier this month at LAX in a graphic Modern Lovers Top Cat Tee ($45), a Ron Herman Cropped Cashmere Cardigan ($276), and Christian Louboutin Alti Booties ($1195, 310.247.9300). Klum also stayed airport appropriate in Von Zipper Alotta Sunglasses ($129), Faliero Sarti's Pedro Scarf ($552) and a Jimmy Choo Croc Bari Bag ($28000, 310.860.9045). We are charmed by her entire ensemble, but want to take a moment to hone in on her fantastic Cotton Satine Trousers ($650) from Christian Siriano's F/W 08 Collection. We don't foresee skinny jeans going out of style anytime soon, but now is the time to explore swapping them out with slim black trousers for a more sophisticated look. You
